Workshop 2 day- Title : Problem solving ‘on your feet’ en plein air painting

Description :
2 day working on location workshop to help you achieve drama in your painting. Demo/lecture each morning.
You will learn to ‘bake the cake ‘before you applying the frosting.
Ever wondered why your finished painting bears little resemblance to the excitement you felt when starting your painting ?
Students will work on location and complete 2 12x16 or smaller paintings per day.

Goals :
What you can expect from this workshop
Students at the end of a 2 day workshop will be able to recognize a strong composition and see values using grisalle. This will enable you to make decisions when doing problem solving on your own, painting on location.
Grisaille studies, directly on canvas will enable you to commit to a composition and value plan instead of constantly adjusting your values and shadows, commonly known as ‘chasing the light’. This eliminates the also common fragmented, unfocused painting.

Experience level : Beginner to Intermediate

Prerequisite Student Skills: It is suggested that beginners have the experience of at least one drawing course.

Student Required Materials: The workshop is taught using a limited primary color pallette. A complete list of suggested oil & acrylic pigments is supplied. Canvas board or stretched canvas 12 x 16 or smaller. A support for canvas and carrying materials. Incidental list also provided. A painting umbrella is strongly suggested.

Class maximum : 15 students
